(61a) New Approaches in Separation Process Development

Frank, T. C., The Dow Chemical Company

The field of chemical process separations covers a very wide range of technologies including distillation, extraction, adsorption, crystallization, and membrane-based separations.  This presentation will give an overview of the industry and provide examples of several new approaches taken at Dow in the development and implementation of separations technology for commodity chemicals, specialty chemicals, and bio-derived products.  Examples include novel applications of solvents in bioprocessing, membrane-assisted removal of VOCs from latex, and reactive distillation for chiral separations.  Methods for rapid screening of separation process options also will be described.
